  1. Alright, I think this deserves a real discussion. Last night many of us witnessed the highest price ever publicly paid for a L.B. Cole book. Blue Bolt #105 (as seen below) was sold on Comic Link for $37,500. The book was a Stunning CGC 9.8 White. Many have already stated they thought it would go higher. Last highest paid (publicly) was the Spokane Copy of Blue Bolt #115 CGC 9.6 OW/W back in November of 2017 which went for $16,700. Some fun questions to lead into this thread: Do Pedigree Copies exist of Blue Bolt #105? I see all the other LB Cole Blue Bolts have either Crippen, Bethlehem, Northford or Spokane copies having sold. Out of all the Blue Bolt's sold; #105 has had the least amount of times either Graded (recorded by GPA) or Raw (amount that come up on eBay) Is it truly because everyone is hoarding them and holding so tightly? Or is there a truer scarcity to this issue? Combination of both? What are the estimated values for Blue Bolt #105 9.6 / 9.4 / 9.2 / 9.0 copies currently given the sale of a 9.8 yesterday for $37.5K and a 7.5 (last month) for 6.9K? Currently Graded there is: 1x 9.8. 2x 9.2's (one Q) 2x 8.0's 3x 7.5's
  2. I think our "Universe is Expanding" if you catch my drift...
  3. @lbcolefan what issue did you find the toughest time finding a respectable copy for?
  4. I do ultimately think that the book has been "under-valued" (in a static sense) due to a lack of copies coming up for air; in order to actually realize a "record of prices". So when we do start to actually see them hit the record logs it causes some sensation. I don't think there is anything wrong at all with the prices being paid for the grades. It is to many the Pinnacle of Cole Covers depending where you pitch your tent.
  5. @Ryan. It wasn't confusion due to the facts you presented (which are much-appreciated); it was a confusion as to the prices being paid for certain copies of certain books (though that was more of a tongue in cheek response as well ).
  6. Strong price for a recent Raw Blue Bolt #105 on eBay. $869 in "FR/GD 1.5+" Condition. May be the strongest price I have seen for a raw low grade copy of this book yet.

  12. Man we are really tough on Warren around here. So I thought we would play nice for a little bit and give everyone the opportunity to post some of thier favorites, nicest or whatever they want...regarding WARREN. I will start this with first off one of my favorite artists for his use of vibrant colors: Richard Corben, and on top of that my favorite cover that he did for Warren. Man I love this one... -bounty

    @Buck Biggins did you get the Imaging Service from CGC on these? Or did you scan them yourself? Was curious to know what Scanner you used if so. Also opening this up to the thread. Anyone know of good scanners for Magazine Sized CGC Slabs? BTW CONGRATS on these Stunning grades.

    This in fact did happen multiple times in my lengthy Halloween sales thread. It’s just a balance of etiquette we get to via communication. But the counterbalance of that is you are reducing natural conversation in your threads.
